Household Hazardous Wastes

Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) are the left-over products from hazardous products used in the home. Some of these wastes exhibit poisonous, combustible, explosive and/or flammable properties. When compared with other types of wastes, HHW are a small component of the waste stream.

If HHW are discarded into the residential solid waste stream, the storm sewer system, or the natural environment, environmental damage may occur. If products are improperly stored in the home there may be negative impacts on the health of the residents.

The HHW Depot is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
